Fletcher

Recommended Posts

In the aftermatch interview he looked and sounded very relaxed. Sounds like a nice bloke as well. He will need looking after if he is to play regularly for us. As others have said, he holds the ball well and gives good flick-ons. If only Kieren Lee was around to pick up the knock downs.

I too thought he did really well and his flick ons to the WIDE players a feature of the game. Will watch with great interest at the weekend to see if the likes of Patterson, Fraser and Robertson are rested because their club coaches think playing two matches in four days has taken too much out of them. We could all be surprised though and Fletch could start on Saturday. I won't hold my breath.

 

Have any of them recently had a long pat off due to a serious knee injury that they were carrying months before their absence?

We'll have forwards Nuhiu, João, Matias and Forestieri fit and available for Saturday.

 

Why do we want to start someone that's just been involved in games Saturday/Tuesday before?

What do those three 24 year olds have in common that makes their managers play them, when our manager refuses to play 31 year old Fletcher on Saturday?

He's not been this fit for a while. 

 

He is looking faster and fitter than anytime since he arrived.

If Jos manages injuries so well, then Fletcher should be ok to play.  There's no point in saying how important is he is and then suggest not playing him in case he gets injured.

Brilliant. He can play two games in four days at international level but can’t play two games in a week for us?

Sorry that sounds a bit illogical. 

Are you saying that Jos managing injuries well would lead him to play Fletcher?

Surely not playing Fletcher could be seen as managing injuries well?

Surely not playing him (he’s not on pitch) is illogical for a football team, if he’s an important player.  

 

Or shall we rest all of our good players, and just lose every week. 

 

Gone are the days when players could play Saturday-Wednesday-Saturday and still perform hey! 

 

Nilsson played I the FA cup final that went to extra time (Saturday) then for Sweden in a World Cup qualifier (Wednesday), then got a jet back to play the FA cup final replay (Thursday) and played more extra time!!

I'd be asking Fletcher the question if I was jos, can you give us an hour on Saturday, see if we can build the platform and then give you a rest. You don't always have to drop or rotate someone out of the team/sqaud to give them a bit of a rest during the campaign. 

Give him the first half of games, then change things up at half time maybe, it's not like the old days when you only had one sub and need to save it in case of an injury. That way 45 mins or an hour rest regularly would help team cohesion too if your often starting the same line up.

Good work for the second goal. Shows what happens when you have midfield runners up with play. They made that goal look easy!

What's a 'midfield' :ph34r:

Think he was expecting to be subbed earlier than he was last night so he'll be tired.

 

Catch 22 because we desperately need him but 3 games in a week is a risk, especially for a player his age and with his injury history.

jos seems to be getting the blame for leaving players out because the medical boffins say they some of them arnt fit enough to play 3 games a week and if they do they are at risk of picking injuries ...carlos got blamed for ignoring this advice and then got stick for the players picking up injuries …….it's sad fact that as players advance into the later stages of there careers that some become a bit of a liability on the injury front which is probably one of the reasons that jos is trying desperately to build a younger squad which isn't easy to do when you cant buy players .
